Creating a Culture of Student Success: Insights from Howard University
Ensuring student success in higher education encompasses a broad range of pursuits, including academic rigor, inclusive access, community service, workforce-readiness and more. Building a culture focused on excellence across all facets of the student’s journey is a deliberate focus that requires broad institutional support, and Howard University has shown it’s not only possible, but necessary.

Join this webcast for an in-depth discussion on creating a sustainable culture of student success featuring one of our nation’s leading HBCUs. Amongst other accolades, Howard University is the leading producer of African American students entering medical schools in the U.S. and is the only HBCU to be ranked in the top 100 in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges list (2022-2023). Join Howard’s Provost, Dr. Anthony K. Wutoh, and Kaplan’s Kim Canning and Petros Minasi to hear how Howard is building on its legacy of top alumni and instituting new initiatives to continue to propel the university forward.

Key webcast topics include:

• Challenges and opportunities for universities to continuously deliver a high-quality experience.
• Perspectives on workforce readiness and DEI initiatives to ensure the needs of all students -- including historically-excluded groups -- are addressed.
• Prioritization to provide all students with free access to test prep for graduate admissions standardized exams, licensures and certifications to level the playing field and help them achieve their educational and career goals.
• Improvements in operational efficiencies that save resources and refine quality standards.

This webcast was made possible in part by the financial support of Kaplan. I understand that by registering for this webcast, my registration information will be shared with Inside Higher Ed and the sponsor for marketing purposes.
